Knowing when car insurance claim denials are in bad faith

Insurance companies are businesses with the purpose of making money. It is not unusual for an insurer to deny or undervalue a claim to avoid making a substantial payout. Still, Illinois drivers may seek the best deal on car insurance only to find the policy does not cover what they expected. While it may seem a claim denial is in bad faith, there may be other reasons why the insurer refused to pay.

A judge must find negligence in wrongful death claims

Losing a loved one constitutes a traumatizing experience. When you lose a loved one due to the careless actions of a company or an individual, you may feel especially devastated. While beginning to recover, you know that you deserve compensation for the loss of your loved one, and you want to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the individual(s) responsible for your family member’s death.

Trick-or-treat personal injury hazards in the neighborhood

Many Illinois parents enjoy Halloween as much as their children. There may be adult parties, costume contests and the Naperville Halloween Hop for all ages. Of course, trick-or-treating is the climax of the holiday. However, as spooky and fun as neighborhood properties may be, if property owners neglect to exercise precautions, those decorations may present a personal injury hazard for kids and chaperones.

Does your employer's dress code violate your civil rights?

High schools in Illinois and across the country are dealing with many serious issues. Some administrations believe they can combat these issues through adherence to a strict dress code. In the business world, dress codes exist to promote the image of company professionalism, to make it easy for clients to distinguish employees or for safety issues. However, employers must be careful that their dress code policies do not violate the civil rights of their workers.
